Make your work more satisfying, be more effective, and overcome the bias that can hold you back. Understand how your brain works, and the shortcuts of thinking that direct most of what we do, how others react to us and us to them. In your everyday job: • What can you do when you're being side-lined, talked-over, or someone else gets credit for your ideas? • What to do if your colleagues react badly when you stand up for your point of view? • Are you too tired to be ambitious? • Do you dread the words "I need to give you some feedback"? This book uses the insights of neuroscience to tackle your career challenges from two angles – literally. Reading from one end, you'll find guidance on the career-management issues that confront both men and women: how to be more resilient, giving up on multi-tasking and being more productive, building networks and finding sponsors, developing the mindset that will help you, and becoming an inclusive leader. And reading from the opposite end you'll learn about the particular challenges for women at work: the power of deeply-entrenched gender stereotyping, how to challenge the kind of language and meeting-management that keeps women down, finding new ways to negotiate pay rises, juggling warmth vs competent, resisting a backlash, and building the kind of gender equal organisation we all want to work in. Dip in and out for the solutions for your career stage. Or dive right in and develop a brain-savvy approach to your working life. Use the Career hacks to tackle bias, manage your career and be more influential.
